About Our School

Mid-Prairie West Elementary

Welcome to Mid-Prairie West Elementary!  We are excited you are here!

I am Robin Foster, Principal of MP-West.  Mid-Prairie has been my home for 8 years.  I served 5 years at Mid-Prairie East Elementary, and am serving my third year at Mid-Prairie West Elementary. 

Mid-Prairie West Elementary is home to the district’s Preschool program, Alternative Kindergarten, and 3rd and 4th grades.

We offer a tuition-based 3 year old preschool program with options for a Monday/Thursday class or a Tuesday/Friday class. 

The 4 year old preschool program is a half day program with morning or afternoon options with no class on Wednesdays.

Alternative Kindergarten is a four day, full day program offered to students who turn 5 on or before September 15.  There is no Alternative Kindergarten on Wednesdays.  CLICK HERE for more information about our Alternative Kindergarten program. 

Mid-Prairie West practices PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) and Early Childhood PBIS. Our Golden Hawks are Respectful, Responsible and Safe!  We encourage all adults to recognize our friends for positive behavior by giving positive reinforcement & feedback, followed by a ticket we use for all school celebrations. 

Our schedules are full!  All 3rd & 4th grade students have access to Benchmark Literacy, Illustrative Math, Morning Meeting, grade level Phonics, Science, Social Studies, Read Alouds, Handwriting, and Writing.  We also prioritize recess with more than 40 minutes daily and our special classes: P.E., Computer Science, Music, Spanish, Art, Library, and Guidance.
